No details yet

Sometimes it pays to stay at work even though it's time to go home.

Today, for instance.

Because that promotion that my boss has been talking about for the past month? Happened exactly fifteen minutes before time to go home.

Now, the interesting part is how fast it happened once the wheels were in serious motion. Normally, time at the Corporation is measured, well, geologically. In this situation, I honestly expected things to get going in February, maybe even March.

But not so much. Because when I come back from vacation in two weeks, I won't be coming back. My family, literally, will be dropping me off on the way home, in another city, where I'll be in training for two weeks. All expenses paid. But that also means that next week, meaning the week including Christmas, is my last week on my current job.

The timing couldn't be better. Or weirder.

But it's really hard to get all the way excited until I know what kind of raise we're looking at. Maybe I'll know tomorrow, but probably not. I have a pretty good guess, since my current position is one that is privvy to that kind of information.

Annnnnnnnnnnnnd, I don't know how to end this post. So I guess I'll just stop writing.

You've had lots of good things in your life in the last two weeks! I remember that when I was your age lots of things seemed to fall into place...maybe that's happening for you also.

That's fabulous, good for you. What a nice way to begin 2008. I hope it's a promotion you wanted, and a job you'll love, and that the money is good, if not excellent.

Cheers!
